Need an answer to a debuff question...

Recommended Posts

Do PW's get the benefit of an impact debuff from grav link at lv 5 or lv 7? I keep hearing different answers on this. I rather not call forward my grav link skill to find out if I don't have to.

I can vouch that you get the impact debuff at 5. I can't say it stacks (don't have the gear yet) but my impact weaps hit much harder with a lvl 5 grab link. And from the tool tips, grav link 7 is simply grav link 5 aoe. But grav link 5 does give the impact debuff. Edited by Abysial

Thanks. I can tell you that the lv 7 grav link stacks with the debuff from the Skirmish Omega shield (L9). It also stacks with Cassel's Wither (L7). I have heard that all three stack, but that doesn't seem to bear out in the damage I see in combat. If I debuff with the Skirmish then try to debuff again with the Wither, I get the message saying that a stronger debuff is already on the target. When I debuff with the Wither first, the Skirmish just seems to override the Wither buff. Perhaps I am seeing something wrong.

In general we can buff/debuff with the strongest from the source (skill, equipment, etc) so in this case the shield and device are from the same source, only the strongest applys.

Buffs that do the same thing, but have different names; however should stack in most cases.  Not certain on debuffs.   The PW isn't the only class that would have an interest in this.

Both gravlink 5 and 7 will debuff impact (and also explosive!). The game seems to treat them as two different kinds of debuffs so gravlink 5 will stack with gravlink 7. As for using other impact debuffers, for example Cassel or Skrimish, these stack with gravlink 7 but NOT with gravlink 5. If you use Skirmish shield + gravlink 5 + gravlink 7, then gravlink 5 will override the debuff from the Skirmish shield eventhough the Skirmish shield actually has a stronger debuff. If you start with gravlink 5 and then try to use the Skirmish shield, you will be told that that a stronger debuff is already in place, eventhough this is clearly incorrect.

 

The strongest impact debuff you can achieve as a PW is lv 9 Skirmish shield + gravlink 7. This will give an (approx) 85% damage increase making it (as far as I know) the strongest debuff in the game.
